* On ''Series/TheColbertReport'', Creator/StephenColbert once interviewed Cookie Monster regarding a minor controversy over ''Sesame Street'' segments with Cookie being taught to regard his namesake treat as a "sometimes food", perceived by many as a PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad reaction to childhood obesity concerns. Colbert caught Cookie eyeballing the host's large, round Peabody award and warned the monster off--only to find the award gone missing in the episode's stinger.
** Years earlier, on ''Series/TheDailyShow'', Creator/JonStewart had Kermit as a guest and, later, Miss Piggy. Both interviews had awkward moments, with Stewart self-consciously [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] the fact that he was interacting with a puppet, but he did get in some good lines.
--->'''Stewart (to Piggy):''' Got a little frog in your throat?
** At one point, when Kermit made a point that Stewart couldn't refute, Stewart said, "I can't believe it. The frog's runnin' circles around me."
** Since then, TDS has featured reports from correspondent "Gitmo" (an Elmo puppet with a full beard, voiced by Stewart).
** TDS also did an interview with a Muppet Michael Steele as he was preparing for a fourth of July barbecue... on the fifth of July. Muppet Michael Steele had a few further appearances since then. Including an appearance with the ''human'' Michael Steele.

** Jimmy Fallon is a big Muppets fan. One year just before Christmas, he and the Muppets sang "The Twelve Days of Christmas"(based on the version that originally aired on "John Denver and the Muppets; A Christmas Together"). For his very last scene on ''Late Night'' before moving to ''Series/TheTonightShow'' he accompanied the Muppets on drums in [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome an epic version of "The Weight".]] This may have been an homage to 'The Last Waltz'', the film of Music/TheBand's final concert.
